Marres is looking for your dearest vacation memories

Stoned on Machu Picchu at sunset, your first kiss on the campsite in the south of France, swimming in a mountain river in Agadir, falling head over heels in love at a Lisbon outdoor café, climbing Mount Rinjani in Indonesia or taking your first solo train trip to go stay with your aunt in The Hague.

Marres is looking for your most cherished vacation memory. You can write it down in a story or, if you prefer, in a poem. Perhaps your memory is still so vivid in your mind that you’d rather draw it. Or you may have an 8mm film that allows us to relive your memory with you. A song? Sure!

Email your memory to before July 31.

What are the prizes? Together with Kaboom Hotel, Kruisherenhotel, Hotel The Dutch and Hotel Trash Deluxe, Marres is giving away four overnight hotel stays for two. And free entrance to Marres Tourist Office, of course. The winners will be announced on Thursday, August 4.

Marres Tourist Office

Marres turns into a Tourist Office from August 13 until September 4.

Marres Tourist Office offers new stimuli to the tourist. It offers spiritualism to the needy, friendship to the lonely souls, and a reboot to counter boredom and fatigue. The Tourist Office will feature a walk through Maastricht with an audio guide by Frank Koolen, a picknick in the yarden with blankets designed by Kim van Norren and Mike Moonen. You can also build your own castle with LEGO® stones in the work of Krijn de Koning. During the weekends you can enjoy a full programme with lectures by Hans Aarsman, performances by and with Wiel Kusters, a sensory meeting with the work of Doina Kraal and live radio shows by Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee radio or relax during a dj-set by Mike Moonen.
